Joseph Had a Little Overcoat

by

Joseph Had a Little Overcoat Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Joseph had a little overcoat, but it was full of holes—just like this book! When Joseph's coat got too old and shabby, he made it into a jacket. But what did he make it into after that? And after that?

As children turn the pages of this book, they can use the die-cut holes to guess what Joseph will be making next from his amazing overcoat, while they laugh at the bold, cheerful artwork and learn that you can always make something, even out of nothing.

Synopsis:

As children turn the pages of this book, they can use the die-cut holes to guess what a man will be making next out of his shabby overcoat. Full color.

Synopsis:

When Joseph's overcoat got too shabby, he kept making a variety of garments from this one article of clothing. By flipping the pages, children can guess what Joseph will be making next. Color illustrations throughout.
